The game is played as a turn-based strategy game, with elements of a third person shooter, similarly to the Valkyria Chronicles series of games. Each level involves a team of characters facing off against an opposing team of aliens, with each team taking it in turns to maneuver and attack. Both attacking and movement requires the use of "steam", which depletes whenever a character moves around or uses one of its ability. By saving steam, the player can set up attacks that can interrupt an enemy during their turn, cutting their turn short and granting the player bonuses. Additionally, each character has a single move that can be used once per level that doesn't cost steam. Fallen characters can be revived with medals, but the game ends if all characters are defeated.
